Sticky Thread Sticky: About becoming a personal trainer

I get a lot of messages and questions from would-be and new trainers, and most dedicated gym-goers have at some point wondered about becoming a PT, so this goes out to them. Any questions or comments, fire away. Sr9FXdWc9l8

Sticky Thread Sticky: [new PTs] Wage, percentage and rental

Attached is a rental contract from Goodlife here in Australia . The rest we can't see as the interviewing manager (illegally) wouldn't let the potential "employee" take the rest with them to examine at home (or even worse, let a lawyer see it) and shredded it in front of them. You can see why...

I decided on NASM. Signed up last night. Took the practice test on the NASM Edge app.

I immediately took the test after signing up and downloading the app. I wanted to see how much I forgot after 15 years of not being a certified trainer and being out of the fitness culture for approximately the last ten years (up until last January). I did better than I thought I would in some...

Need advice with my workout and diet routine

About 9 years ago, I weighed in about 300lbs. I started by drinking nothing but water and started walking and jogging. I started to eat right and limited my fat, sugar and carb intake so that I could loose fat. I did that for about 2 years and finally got down to about 210 lbs. As soon as I lost a...

Question for trainers or experienced body builders Why is it that the body builders today are extremely vascular and cut. Back in the Arnold days, the competitors were not nearly as ripped as they are today... So what’s different? The supplements? The diet?

What is the hardest area on the body for you to teach on how to train?

For some reason for me, it's the abdominals. I give cues like curl the pelvis under and leave it there, put your feet up higher on the ball, breathe out when going, etc. Anytime I give a cue, they never due it. They wonder why their back hurts, so I explain, aaaaaaaaand they keep doing the same...

Eat your vegies

Too many trainers focus on macronutrient ratios and timing and blah blah, when some more very basic things are missed - are they eating any fruit and vegies?
